Heaven and Hell have been in an eternal conflict since the creation of mankind. Earth is the battleground to a spiritual war that only few see and take part in. The Catholic Church is caught off guard when a portal leading into Hell suddenly opens. William Bourgeois, a young man and aspiring monk from Louisiana, doesn't realize that he will play a vital part in the success or failure, and overall survival of God's creations. The reality of everything he thought he knew is turned upside down when he is forced to take part in this unseen war raging around him.
The creation of mankind sparked a war between Heaven and Hell. Since its inception, the Catholic Church has done their due diligence in protecting Earth from the legions of demons seeking to enslave every man, woman, and child. Brothers of the Order of Saint Michael and sisters of the Order of Saint Mary have been chosen by God to be the protectors of His creations. William Bourgeois, unaware of this spiritual conflict ensuing around him, is forced to take part in the fight. Unbeknownst to him as to the reasons why, but his life is what's keeping Hell at bay from unleashing their full fury.
About the author
Hi. If you're reading this, know I have a glass of whiskey sitting in front of me half drained. Single malt, Scotch. Occasionally I'll take it on the rocks, but neat is perfectly fine. I can wait a moment for you to grab your drink... (5 minutes later) All set? It's a pleasure to meet you, well, virtually meet you. My name is Blake Harper. That's it, that's all I got... ...Kidding. Humor sometimes gets away from me. It got me in trouble on more than one occasion in the Army, in school, everywhere really. What's life without a little humor? :D I believe everyone has a creative side to them and humor may very well be part of creativity. How are you creative? Think about it. A diverse mind unlocks more possibilities. Writing... now that's something to dive into. I certainly have. Words are powerful and so are stories. Stories help shape the world and although I'm still developing my craft when it comes to the art of writing, it's been one great adventure so far. My serious devotion to it started after I transitioned out of the Army after seven years of service. After completing my master's at USC (Fight On!), I finally figured out what I wanted to do with my life. You guessed it... live off Ramen noodles and write while sitting in my blue bean bag chair. Serious goals right there :D What can I say? I'm happy. I jest, but in all seriousness, I can't thank you enough for taking the time to get to know me, even a little bit. Many of the stories I write have specific characteristics about them. These include: some sense of adventure (Duh! The book has to be entertaining), history, philosophy, and understanding the human condition. These last three aspects some may not find compelling, but me likey. I hope that when people read my stories they uncover a little something about themselves in a positive manner. I believe one should never stop growing. Like I said, it's a hope. It's a pleasure to virtually meet you. Perhaps one day we actually will. In the meantime, enjoy a glass of whiskey for me. If whiskey isn't your choice, then we need to adjust that ;) If you do decide to read any of my works, I'd like to know how you did AND didn't enjoy it. Never stop growing. Cheers everyone! Until my next ramble in the future.
